Hotel Barceló Aran Mantegna, Rome

I attended the 4th International Patient Summit in Rome a couple of weeks ago. It was held in the Barceló Aran Mantegna hotel and was sponsored by Novartis. It was a one day conference so, unfortunately, there was no time for sight-seeing. The conference was brilliant and I hope I can put some of what I learned into practice.

The airport staff in both Dublin and Fiumicino, Rome were very helpful on both legs of the journey.

The hotel was beautiful. It was well presented and easily accessible. Hotel FrontReception and all circulation areas were marble tiled which took the hard work out of wheelchair travel and as everyone knows wheelchair travel on carpet can be energy consuming and people living with MS do not have endless reserves of energy. The dining room and conference area were also marble floored.Lift Area

My bedroom was close to the lifts on the 5th floor and faced out to the front plaza. It is my first time encountering a hotel bedroom with 2 full bathrooms. There was a fully equipped wet room and a main bathroom. Circulation space in the bedroom was a bit restricted as there was a mini-bar at the end of the bed which resulted in the necessity to ‘walk’ to the window to open/close either the window or the curtains. Overall marks for the hotel 4 Stars Wet Room

As I said earlier the conference was great and was attended by 90 delegates from 24 countries. The company was excellent and I met a number of people whom I had previously only encountered on the internet.
